  • MA Reinier Langelaar

Reinier Langelaar joined the institute in March 2015. He studied religious studies at the University of Leiden and received his MA in Central Asian Studies from the Humboldt University in Berlin. His research interests include matters of Tibetan kinship, social organization, genealogy, origin narratives, and ethnicity. Langelaar's dissertation project focuses on late medieval “clan genealogies” (gdung-rabs), with special attention to documents pertaining to the Phag-mo-gru ruling house (chief amongst which the Rlangs-kyi-po-ti-bse-ru), which was the hegemonic power on large stretches of the central Tibetan Plateau from 1354-ca. 1480. This research also touches upon related topics such as ethnic origin narratives (often included in gdung-rabs genealogies), the identification of historical toponyms, biography, and ancestor cults. His research is undertaken within the framework of the overarching interdisciplinary project “Visions of Community” (VISCOM).
